Where does one go and who can they call when their heart is pounding and they fear they might be pregnant? That is the question I personally faced, once upon a time, in my youth. I remember the paralyzing fear and my heart racing with that possibility. Unfortunately, at that time, there were only a handful of pregnancy care centers available in our country. I remember thinking that if I was in fact pregnant I would have no choice but to abort. I ended up not being pregnant but will never forget the overwhelming feeling of being alone. I had no idea who I could talk to, or who would help me.
Thankfully, today there are over 4,000 pregnancy resource centers in the US, and I am blessed to work at one. I am so grateful to be able to see firsthand the care Hope PCC has for our clients and how ready we are to support women and men facing an unplanned pregnancy.
We educate women and their partners about their options with medically and scientifically resourced information with love, and most importantly without judgment. I am so proud to be a part of the support, encouragement, and education for women who are in need. My favorite part of the center is our Earn While You Learn Program for those who have chosen to continue their pregnancies. This program helps enable mommies and daddies to learn about being pregnant, how best to prepare for when their baby enters this world, and teaches valuable parenting skills. The clients earn Mommy Money/Daddy Dollars while learning. With this money they can shop in our beautiful boutique for a variety of baby items.
I hope everyone reading this will pass along the word to let friends, family, and our community know we are here and we truly care! If you or someone you know may be interested in becoming a client, you can learn more about us at our website www.HopePregnancyUtah.org or call 435.652.8343 for an appointment.
